Imagine with us: tasting dishes from some of the nation’s top chefs and vibing to the sounds of a local female DJ and hip hop violinists, all while taking in the artsy warehouse views of Camp North End.

Sounds pretty awesome right?

After receiving rave reviews from the original dates, the Camp North End team has decided to bring back its Next Plate Dinner series for the month of November.

“We wanted to extend the series because our fall and spring events far exceeded expectations and sold out,” Varian Shrum, Community Manager of Camp North End, told CharlotteFive. “People had such a great experience.”

The latest installments of this art and food mashup up will take place on November 6, 13, and 20 and, as a new addition, bring together popular Charlotte chefs along with acclaimed national chefs for a themed multi-course meal with drinks.

If being able to feast on some amazing dishes wasn’t enough to persuade you, each dinner will also feature a visual or performing artist.

“We wanted to give artists and chefs the creative freedom to design their own immersive dinner experience. Each one will feel different based on who’s participating. We’re working to continually elevate what Charlotte has to offer,” Shrum said.

The lineup for the series is as follows:

November 6: “Bao to the Crown,” an Asian street food menu featuring Chef Marc Marrone of Graffiti Bao in Las Vegas (Las Vegas Food & Wine Chef of the Year 2019). Drinks will be provided by Free Range Brewing, who will soon open a location in Camp North End. Look forward to a live street art competition by the Battle Walls team. 

November 13: “Colors of Fall”, featuring seasonal fare with some live fire cooking.
